Hi Eric,

Is this commit log more correct?


This fixes a problem with dropped packets over 16k CDC-NCM
when the connection is being heavily used.

The issue was that the extracted frames cloned from the
received frame were consuming more memory than necessary
due to the truesize being ~32KB instead of ~2KB, this
meant there was a high chance of reaching the sk_rcvbuf
limit.

Thank you,
